Even though Bhimavaram Bullodu did commercially well, the talk and reviews of the movie are highly disappointed Sunil. The actor felt the need to show variation as an actor lest audience will get bored with him very easily. The actor so opted to kick start his Devotional film, Bhakta Kannappa. The preproduction of the movie is going on at full swing and the film will start rolling from April/May.
This film is the remake of Bapu directed Bhakta Kannapppa (1976), a story about Lord Shiva’s devotee. This will be a second film of Writer turned director Tanikella Bharani. Bharani’s directorial debut, Midhunam starring SP Bala Subrahmanyam and Lakshmi won so much of critical acclaim. We have no information about Sunil’s character in the movie, but it will certainly be a change for Sunil.
